I heard a quote somewhere that said, "Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a queen, and dinner like a peasant." I have no idea where I heard it but it made sense.. I eat a big breakfast, an average lunch - if I'm hungry, or I may snack. I usually eat a light dinner at around 5pm, one plate, no second rounds. I don't eat anymore after 6. This routine seems to work well for me. I have a weakness for ice cream though and the after 6 part isn't always easy to maintain.
You can take an advanced nutrition course on line..
You shouldn't ever go hungry.. and that will be about what you eat.
My driver, in his mid 40s, was diagnosed with diabetes last year.. He has changed his diet and lost 30 libs.. He eats NO junk food or fast food.. He eats huge quantities of fruits, vegetables, salads, beans, some chicken and lots of baked fish.. and he's fine now.
I'm blown away when he cooks at my house once in a while.. He's very creative and his food is good.

"Their faces were as a rule good-natured rather than beautiful, broad, bright-eyed, red-cheeked, with mouths apt to laughter, and to eating and drinking. And laugh they did, and eat, and drink, often and heartily, being fond of simple jests at all times, and of six meals a day (when they could get them): breakfast, second breakfast, elevensies, luncheon, tea, and dinner."--from the prologue to The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien.

i watch out all your comments and i want to share my opinion that we must have to take dinner because we save from any diseases by taking dinner and be healthful but do not take heavy dinner because after dinner we have to sleep if we take heavy dinner then we lost our diet
